deathnapped through most of the day, now space trekkin’ with the cat

Laws signed into effect by Putin this Tuesday

"We are used to ignoring our own bodies. “These carrots are too spicy” we complained as a child, only to be told no, they were sweet, that the music wasn’t too loud, nobody can hear lights, what you are experiencing is invalid. We heard: you are invalid. You do not experience the world the same way as everyone else, and therefore, your experience is wrong. You learn to ignore the ever-present pain because nothing can be done about it, but then you have a kidney infection and others get mad at you for not noticing sooner. But why should you trust your body when it is always wrong?"

it freaks me out when adults intentionally use infantile language or ‘cutesy’ words (e.g. tummy instead of stomach) or call their parents mommy and daddy but that is probably because my family had a strict no-baby-talk policy

like when grown humans say things like ‘someone come snuggle me, my tummy hurts’ it makes me physically uncomfortable

at least part of it is negative touch-sound synesthesia with certain phonemes that occur more often in such words but ughghghgh

this is not an indictment against anyone who speaks that way, just a difference i have noticed in both my own sensory perception and the way i was raised


as you can see class, we have come full circle back to pre-irony, or what memeologists refer to as Genuine Enjoyment
